For our personal progress portion of the night, I just pulled the YW out one by one and sat down with them for about 5 minutes to discuss how they are coming along with personal progress. We also did a little bit of planning for our upcoming Young Women in Excellence Night. We are hosting an Oscar themed night, inspired by this blog post, and I am really excited. So we asked each girl to begin thinking about what value she would like to speak about and to think of a woman in the ward who emulates that value. Some girls knew right a way, and some need extra time to think it over. It should be a great night.
Our pumpkin carving went a little over time because we have some pretty creative youth in our ward.
Yes, there was a lot of pretend stabbing going on. It could not be avoided.
It was a great night that helped our YM and YW bond.
